Cyril Deakins Exhibition October 2016

Welcome to the Aubrey Art Gallery.

During October the gallery has the opportunity to try to do justice to the amazing work of two generations of the Deakins family. Cyril (1916-2002) was a highly talented illustrator working in original print making, watercolour and egg tempura. Sylvia (1924-2015) also worked in a variety of media, frequently portraying delightful childhood activities. Their son Tom (1957 -) specialises in highly detailed oil studies drawn from an intimate knowledge and love of the Essex countryside; he has frequently exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition as well as at the New English Art Club.

Exhibition runs 5th - 29th October, with an open day on the 8th October from 11am - 1pm.

The gallery was founded in 2009 and specialises in original prints, drawings and watercolours - pictures to give pleasure - by an eclectic mix of artists including Penny Berry Paterson, Hugh Brandon Cox, Robert Gillmor, Andrew Haslen, Andrew Pitt, John Tookey, Sue Williams and Nat Young. Browse the artist pages and enjoy!

In keeping with a green approach to the environment, the gallery will no longer be sending flyers advertising our exhibitions in the post as everything will be by email. If you do not have an email address, then of course we will send you any appropriate information (but can you let us have your name please)

The majority of our stock, including a selection of a quality books by artists such as John Busby and Eric Ennion, can be purchased here online - please phone or email to enquire about framed work which does not have a 'buy now' button - but we would be delighted to welcome you to our gallery in the heart of the historic market town of Great Dunmow where we display a wide selection of framed prints and watercolours, and oil paintings including work by Paul Darley, John Dobbs, Brin Edwards, Piers Grizzelle, John Shave and Paul Stone.

As from February 1st, the gallery will be open Wednesday and Friday from 10am - 4pm and Thursday and Saturday from 10am - 2pm , or by appointment.
